This was my plan … go on a three or four week road trip this summer with my cat, Mew Ling. I really am loathe to leave her and I wanted to see some of the sights that America has to offer (Yellowstone, Glacier Park, the Badlands) and maybe some of what Canada has to offer (Lake Louise). I still have three states on the lower 48 that I haven’t been to, and wanted to tick them off the list. They are Idaho, Montana, and North Dakota. The places I wanted to see this summer, just happen to be in those states! Imagine that! I figured Mew could just come with me. She does fine in the car. She does fine in hotels. She can be on a leash. It was going to be great! 🙂 And she was VERY much looking forward to it! 😉
But this morning my phone rang. It was Betty from Teen Missions. She was calling to ask me to lead another Teen Missions team this summer. All of the sudden my world and future again look completely different. That seems to be happening to me a lot in the past few years. And that’s fine with me. Keeps me on my toes, really.
Yeah, I’m going to go. Now all I have to do is decide where the “right” place is.
Sicily? Trinidad? Jamaica? Or back to Zambia?
She wants to know tomorrow! Yikes! If you remember, last year my team assignment was changed a number of times. I imagine that regardless of whatever team I choose, I could very well end up somewhere else again! Which would be just fine with me. Worked out great last summer!
Wow. I can’t believe I had to pull out the old “Gettin’ Ready for TMI” category! I mean, I CAN, but you know what I mean! I haven’t even finished processing and writing about all of my amazing and miraculous experiences from last summer and here I am thinking about all the things I need to do to get ready to go again!
Oh, and I asked if they had a single guy that they were putting on as the head leader with me, and Betty said “No. We don’t. Do you know anyone that would be a good leader and would want to go?”.
Maybe I can talk one of my brothers into going with me…
Hey, Low!! 🙂
